Passing the Baton: Generations Sharing Leadership

Publication Date: July 14, 2008

Authors: Buhl Alice

This report describes how family foundations have been very resourceful in promoting next generation activities, but have done relatively little to address the succession issues for the senior generation or to consider options for shared leadership between generations.

After considering the factors that shape succession decisions and sharing important lessons from the family business world, Buhl introduces the creative possibilities of shared leadership as well as tips for both senior and next generation members.
